Different Ways of Using Lipstick

Is it safe to use lipstick as blush? Can lipstick be used as a colour corrector? Wait, wait, wait! Fret not. Below down we’ve prepared an ultimate guide for you to know how to use lipstick in multiple ways!

Lipstick As blush or cheek stain

If you are thinking can we use lipstick as blush, the answer is yes. Lipsticks can act as a fantastic cream blush. These are especially good if you have oily skin as they sink into the skin and stay put for longer. It can work on all skin types. It gives a natural look to the cheek and can be used as a cheek stain. Apply red or pink lipstick lightly on your cheeks with your fingers and blend with fingers or brush. Set it with a little fixing powder and you are good to go. It's one of the best ways to use lipstick alternatively.

Lipstick as Corrector

Who knew our red lipstick can be used as a corrector? Deep colour correctors like orange, red and green are often used to hide dark and uneven skin tones. Dark circles are usually blue or green in tone. Using bright colours like orange or red on the dark circles actually neutralizes the darkness and helps to cover it well. Apply red lipstick on the under-eye areas as you would a concealer and then cover it with foundation. Set with fixing powder or compact and you will see all traces of darkness gone from your skin. There are various YouTube videos that show how to use lipstick as a skin tone corrector.

Lipstick as Lip Stain

A hint of colour on the lips can work wonders on certain days. And if you do not have a tinted lip balm, just put your trusty lipstick to good use. Just dab on some colour on the centre of your lips after moisturising it and enjoy the just-bitten lips feel.

Lipstick as Eyeshadow

Use your lipstick as eyeshadow and you’ll have a lot more colour options. The creamy formula will adhere to your lids imparting the colour and making it look like an eyeshadow. This is how to use lipstick as eyeshadow: Rub the tip of a finger directly on the lipstick bullet and apply the product onto the lid. Set the product with translucent powder or dab on some highlighter or glitter to enhance the look. You can also go for a monochromatic look by using one shade of lipstick as blush and eyeshadow and on the lips.

Lipstick as eyelid primer

Primers keep the eyelids moisturised and provide a base for the eyeshadow. Your nude coloured lipstick can have the same effect. Just dab it on the eyelids in place of primer to make the eyeshadow look brighter and stick better.

Lipstick for contouring and highlighting

Browns and dark nude lipstick shades can be used to contour the cheeks and nose. Just run it on the area that requires sculpting and blend away the harsh lines with a brush. Set a translucent powder later. Similarly, frosted or nude glittery lipsticks in your lip kit can be used as highlighters.
